Quote #7

[M] gives me that look I'm finding on the faces of all the Dead. That mixture of confusion, fear, and faint anticipation. (1.8.140)

That mixture of confusion, fear, and faint anticipation that the zombies are starting to get on their faces? That's the look of the Living.

Quote #8

It frustrates and fascinates me that we'll never know for sure, that despite the best efforts of historians and scientists and poets, there are some things we'll just never know. (2.1.2)

This lack of knowing is just part of existence. We can never know everything, especially is someone's story is never told. And even if it is told, sometimes it gets lost. We just have to learn to deal with never knowing.

Quote #9

"There's no benchmark for how life's 'supposed' to happen, Perry." (2.1.57)
